How's it going everybody, My name is Kevin, wife just got me a smoker (Masterbuilt XL gas). Never have had a smoker. Always wanted one so I can get into it. Now I'm excited to go at it. From a small town on the southern coast of Texas called Rockport. I work a lot (shift) at a chemical plant. Got a little angel of a daughter that I love a bunch and the best wife I could ask for. Pretty excited to join this forum and get into smoking. Always wanted to try it. I remember my uncles making awesome brisket, ribs, chicken, everything. I love food and some good cold beer to go with it. Just going to browse around and pick up a bunch of good advise and info to educate myself to start it off.
